Kitchen Remodel…Finally!

A year after we started this project, I’m finally getting around to posting the big reveal!  And I’ve had the pictures saved in a draft since October, so I figured I’d better get to it!

When we bought the house a little over 4 years ago, this is what the kitchen looked like.

During the process of remodeling the entire house before we moved in, we managed to get the kitchen into this.  New countertops, backsplash, paint etc.  In order to clean the cabinets from the disgusting amount of grease and grime (and cat hair) that had accumulated on them, we sandblasted the doors, which in turn gave them a nice texture.

The nite Chris decided to tear up my house, the wall transformed into this….

Then we decided to go ahead and paint the cabinets white, get new doors and drawers and get new flooring.  Chris had a built in built for the refrigerator and the pantry.

There wasn’t anything wrong with the tile in here, but if we were going to replace it, I wanted a brick floor.  After everything was said and done, I absolutely love it.  But for a period of about 2 1/2 months, I hated myself for wanting that.

After they laid and finished the entire kitchen, dining, laundry rooms, the brick started breaking.  Literally, if you walked on it or moved a chair, the tile would shatter.  After taking it up with the manufacturer, they decided it was a bad batch of brick and they would pay to rip it up and replace it.  It was awful.

In the end though, all the months of having my kitchen destroyed I think were well it.  I could not love it more.  It’s so much brighter and cleaner looking!  Enjoy the BIG REVEAL!!

Kitchen countertops replacement is much more than a chance to make your kitchen more attractive. When you work to find the right countertops for your space and your needs, you can create a kitchen that is designed just for you.
